RiT SMART CLASSix STP Patch Panels are part of the RiT SMART CLASSix Cabling SystemTM, featuring Category 6 performance. The system is designed to Conforms to ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B.2-1, ISO/IEC 11801 2nd edition (2002) and CENELEC EN50173 (2002) for Category 6/Class E. 


PatchView™ Capability
SMART CLASSix 24 Panels, when used in conjunction with RiT's PatchView System, can scan the wiring center configuration and subsequently report the connectivity status. 


Patching information is displayed on the management station for cabling management and control. 


LED indicators on panels identify any two ports patched together. Extremely useful for facilitating maintenance in mid-to-large size wiring centers which are over congested with patch cords. 


Computerized LED-display guides the technician in performing Moves, Adds & Changes (MAC).



The RiT SMART CLASSix RJ-RJ line of data communications patch panels features an advanced cross-connect concept: network equipment ports are connected to RJ-45 jacks on the back of the patch panel and are represented by corresponding RJ-45 jacks on the front.

Patching Switches or conventional patch cords are used for patching the above-mentioned front ports to other ports, representing users.

The panels are constructed of 48 RJ-45 jacks on the front for patching, 24 RJ-45 jacks on the lower row of the back for connecting equipment ports, and 24 termination blocks on the upper row of the back for terminating horizontal cables.

SMART CLASSix RJ-RJ is available both in shielded and unshielded models. 

RiT's proprietary Patching Switches dramatically reduce the need for patch cords by connecting ports internally, avoiding the traditional patch cord chaos. Cords are needed only to reassign ports. Cross-talk performance is improved in switched channels in comparison to channels using patch cords. The RJ-45 ports can be used for on-line monitoring.

Special SMART CLASSix RJ-RJ models, when used in conjunction with RiT's PatchView solution, are able to perform remote or on-site scanning of the patching configuration.
The entire wiring center's patching configuration is continuously monitored by a Scanner which reports the data to a remote terminal. The network administrator uses this data as a vital part of his cabling management system. The data may be displayed on the panel itself by LED indicators. Servicing time is dramatically reduced as computerized LED displays guide the technician when performing Moves, Adds & Changes (MAC).



Front Interconnection (patch cord side)
48 eight-position or nine-position RJ-45 shielded or unshielded modular jacks.   

Back Interconnection (cabling side) - Lower Row
24, eight-position RJ-45 modular jacks, shielded or unshielded as required. 

Back Interconnection (cabling side) - Upper Row
24 Krone & 110 tool-compatible termination blocks; accept 22 to 26 AWG wires, solid or stranded. Rated for up to a minimum of 200 re-termination cycles.

Note: Termination tools must be ordered separately 

Interconnection to RiT's PatchView system (in selected models)  

PV Panels - Two 26-pin headers on the back of the panel are used for connection to the PV or PVMax Scanner. Use two Group A Scanner Attachment Cords according to the required length. 

PVMax Panels - Two 14-pin headers on the back of the panel are used for connection to the PVMax Scanner. Use one Group B Scanner Attachment Cord according to the required length

The scanning signal is transmitted over pin 9 of the RJ-45. Pin 9 exists in nine-position RJ-45 jack and plug designs, used for these patch panel models. A special patch cord -SMART Jumper, including an extra wire and special RJ-45 plugs is needed. Please refer to the PatchView System and the Copper Cables and Cords sections for further details. 

LEDs (in models adapted to PatchView only)
Port identification indicators - 48 red LEDs. A pair of activated LEDs identifies connected ports. A single port can be identified and the corresponding LED activated by a remote control command from the network management station.

Patching Switches
24 Patching Switches for internal patching. When switched to "PATCH" position - upper and lower ports are connected. When switched to "OFF" position - upper and lower ports are disconnected. Eight wires and the ninth scanning wire (when applicable) of each port are simultaneous
